Doctor's Appointment & Phone Pics

This week we have really started focusing on starting a routine. I'm not really too worried about it, but I do want her to recognize play time vs. sleep time, especially since I have to return to work in a few short weeks : (  She has actually done VERY well! She really is a great baby! If she's not hungry and eating (which is a lot), she is sleeping or playing. It has actually been harder for me to stick with the plan than her, because at night I just want to sit and hold her while she sleeps, not put her to bed. So far, I've only cheated one night ; ) I just can't help myself! She is already growing SO fast and while she lets me just sit and cuddle her, I am going to!

Yesterday, we took her to the pediatrician for her "3 week" visit which was really her 5 1/2 week visit (her doctor was out of the country for a couple of weeks). WOW! Is she growing or what!?!?! She weighed in at 9 pounds 14 ounces and 22 1/2 inches long!!!! She has gained almost 2 1/2 pounds in 3 weeks and grown 2 inches since birth! Looks like we have a model on our hands...not only is she B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L of course, but she is in the 90th percentile for her height! And 70th percentile for weight. Dr. S was very impressed with how strong she is. When he flipped her on her tummy, her head and arms shot right up supporting herself and looking like she was about to crawl off the table! He said he hardly ever sees an baby her age do that at this point : ) So basically, she is PERFECT!

I wanted to take some pictures at her appointment, but when we were sitting in the waiting room, I go to pick her up out of her carseat and realized she had the blowout of 2011!!! All on the FRONT of her?! I have NO clue how she managed what she did! It was 10 times worse than her Father's Day gift and all on the front of her...none on the back...I pretty much had to bathe her in the sink at the doctor's office. It was a MAJOR M-E-S-S! Needless to say, after that I kinda forgot about the pictures.

I do however have some cute pictures from my phone I thought I would share

Life is hard
